The conference “Materials, Systems and Structures in Civil Engineering – MSSCE 2016” is part of the RILEM week 2016, which consists of a series of parallel and consecutive conference and doctoral course segments on different topics as well as technical and administrative meetings in several scientific organizations. The event is hosted by the Department of Civil Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark and the Danish Technological Institute and it is held at the Lyngby campus of the Technical University of Denmark 15-29 August 2016.
This volume contains the proceedings of the MSSCE 2016 conference segment on “Moisture in Materials and Structures”. The conference segment is organized by the Moisture Research Centre, Lund, Sweden and the RILEM technical committee TC 248-MMB: Methods of measuring moisture in building materials and structures. TC 248-MMB started activities in 2012 and has about 30 members from all over the world. The main objective of the committee is to improve and disseminate knowledge related to moisture measurement in construction materials in various scientific and industrial applications, to quantify uncertainties in various methods, to facilitate meetings between researchers working in the field of moisture measurements in different materials and applications, and to give best practices and recommendations for researchers and/or practitioners.
Some of the papers in these proceedings origin from the work in two COST actions: TU 1404 Service Life of Cement-based Materials and Structures and TU 1301 NORM for Building Materials. The papers from COST TU 1404 are spread across several MSSCE 2016 conference segments and it is planned that a separate set of electronic proceedings for this COST action will be published after the conference.
The present conference segment deals with theory, modeling, and results from experimental investigations with relation to moisture in building materials and structures. The topics covered include water absorption, water vapour permeability, gas permeability in moist materials, drying, moisture distribution, moisture penetration through ceilings, salt transport, degradation, moisture damages, moisture transport models, moisture monitoring, electrical investigation for moisture assessment, moisture flux through cracks, non-destructive measurements, hydrophobic impregnation, hygrothermal behavior and damp-proofing. Most of these topics have relation to the aforementioned RILEM technical committee 248-MMB. The conference segment is attended by more than 35 presenters from university, industry and practice. Hopefully, it will contribute to synthesis of research on and promotion of knowledge transfer from academia to practice. All contributions have been peer reviewed.
